About BeautiQ

Technical obstacles and high entrance requirements limit access to the Chinese online market for small and mid-sized manufacturers (SMEs) from countries located in Central, Southern Eastern Europe . At the same time Chinese customers switch their focus from luxury goods to quality medium-price products made from natural raw materials. 

Solution: BeautiQ’s operating solution allowing the consolidation of the sales of a wide range of medium-priced goods from CEE/SEE countries via Chinese marketplaces, namely JD
Worldwide and Tmall and providing business services to EU manufacturers.
Market B2C – the original focus will be the Chinese market place. Then BeautiQ will develop other product niches as FMCG and F&B
Client middle-class men and women; internet users, who are typically focused on taking care of their health and looking after their childrens’ health.
Products: Starting with “Natural Cosmetics”, further development into high quality food and beverages from the CEE/SEE region
Market B2B – the CEE/SEE region
Our Clients: manufacturers planning to enter the Chinese market which are short on resources and can’t afford independent expansion. .
Products: Consulting and business services facilitating entrance into the Chinese market via online cross-border trade
Business model B2C For the start-up and fine tuning of BeautiQ’s processes & services we incorporated a Bulgarian Companyto become an operator of web-stores on Chinese marketplaces (JDW, Tmall Global) using the opportunity provided by the cross-border online sales model.
Covered function: marketing, customer service, fulfillment and delivery;
B2B functionality development - on the basis of obtained experience and partners network;
Operations in Europe – BeautiQ with small staffing numbers, integrated IT infrastructure and an outsourced logistics function;
Operations in China – via JD Worldwide partners (delivery, customer service, reverse logistics) and Digital Marketing agency (marketing activities, SEO , CMM on Chinese web segment (Wechat, Weibo, Baidu etc));
Finance model: Revenue from online sales of one product group (cosmetics, FMCG, F&B) as a base for further development of other products and services.
Operations: First 12 months – multi brand store on JD Worldwide with X-border model;
Starting 2nd year – add consulting and business services .
Marketing strategies: B2C marketing approach will be based on marketing tools available on the JD platform, search engines (Baidu), brand awareness and trustworthy image of the
